Burnham-On-Sea tennis players celebrate success
tennis players at Burnham-On-Sea's Avenue Tennis Club have been
celebrating success this week.
Megan Rundle travelled to Taunton where she confidently won all
her round robin matches against the girls in the Tony Pryce Series
Head Coach Vinny Duddy said: "With this being her second
win in five tournaments, Megan's confidence is growing and she
is looking forward to competing in more competitions over the
Harry Burrow also competed at Taunton and won three and lost
one game, only losing 10-7 to the eventual winner and narrowly
missing out on a semi final spot.
The following day he travelled to Coombe Dingle in Bristol where
18 players entered and Harry comfortably won his five group games
to top the group and win his medal.
Vinny added: "This is great for our tennis club and for
the youngsters who are really keen to continue competing, but
it must be remembered that one of the main reasons that these
youngsters are doing so well is the effort and support shown by
their parents which I think is one of the main criteria for success
at this early age."
Vinny also thanked Geoff Thorne, owner of Jester Prints, in Highbridge
for kindly sponsoring the Avenue Mini Red Academy with Team Hoodies
which have gone down well with the juniors.
The club will be holding its Family Xmas Lunch on Sunday 5th
December, a Junior Christmas Disco and Party on 17th December,
followed by Chairmans Mince Pies on 19th December, a Boxing
Day Social Tennis Tournament on 26th December and a New Year's
Eve Family Disco on 31st December.
